Flash of Genius

Greg Kinnear plays Bob Kearns and Lauren Graham (Phyllis Kearns) in this 2008 movie about an inventor whose idea was stolen by the Ford Motor Company. This is a true David vs. the Big Company story which shows the mental pain and hardship of the 12 year struggle of the David. It is admittedly hard to watch near the middle where Kearns is driven to a mental breakdown but it is worth waiting to see him defend himself in the court battle at the end.
Kinnear pulls off an outstanding performance as do all the members of his family, including Graham as his wife.
Highly Recommended.
